She is doing her first triathlon!!! I am so excited (and impressed) by her!
She started running shortly after I did. She was going to do the Nike Women's Marathon, but didn't get a lottery spot. Since then she was trying to figure out the right race to train for. In the meantime, she suffered some shin splints and IT band issues, so she hit the pool and bike for cross-training. Voila! A triathlete is born.
She is really nervous because this is her first race of any kind. I wanted to post here to give her a cyber boost (she lives several hours from me) and channel some positive energy from other runners.
I wish I could be there to cheer her on.
